This syrup is amazing tasting! It’s nice and minty with the slightest hint of rosemary without any of the woodiness.
Simple syrup is great because it allows for you to use a dryer alcohol and add sweetness accordingly, and it’s also incredibly easy to make. I use a one to one ratio of sugar to water, but today I wanted to spice it up a little so I added some fresh herbs I had lying around.

I actually like to use this syrup to make ice cubes to put into my iced tea, that way I have “sweet tea” without adding lots of sweetener. It’s also really great for gin cocktails and popsicles!

    Put them in your water/sugar mix once the sugar has all dissolved. Allow to simmer lightly for a few minutes. You can continually check it to see if you’ve got the right infusion level of herbal oil to sweetness.

    Step 3

    Remove all of your herbs, let cool for a few minutes in the pan then put into a jar and store into the fridge until you’re ready to use, or fill an ice cube tray with the syrup to freeze and use at a later date as I did.
